They like to be watered when the top two inches of soil feel dry, except Peggy. She can fully dry out between drinks.
To keep those colours bright, they need a spot that’s well-lit but out of direct sun. Direct sun will fade their colour.
For maximum impact, mix these plants up with others that are all green. The contrast will make a really impressive display.

About the colour set
The best plant collections have a wide variety of height, leaf shapes and colour. Add some wow to yours with these stunners in shades of purple and pink.
The set without pots includes:
Julia – This striking calathea has leaves that are bright green with pinkish-cream stripes on top, and deep damson purple underneath. She loves to be somewhere with quite a lot of light and she’ll really appreciate being misted every few days.
Juliette – Like Julia, she’s a calathea and has the same colouring, but her pattern has a softer look, like it’s been painted on with a brush (it hasn’t, we promise). She likes exactly the same care as Julia.
Sophie – The soft pink flowers of syngonium neon robusta give a subtle hit of colour to any room. The leaves emerge pink, then slowly turn a fresh green. Keep her somewhere well-lit and you’ll make the most of her colour.
Peggy – The string-of-hearts’ sweet silver-and-purple, heart-shaped leaves grow on long lavender stems. You can put her on a high shelf and let her cascade toward the ground. She’ll grow as long as you allow.
The set with pots also includes:
Concrete pots - Clean design and honest materials. That’s what these minimalist concrete pots are all about. When the design is this simple, the finish has to be perfect. They're exclusive to Patch.
